Why There Are Words Press

                                                                   An independent publisher of exceptional literary books​ WTAW Press publishes full-length books of prose (novels, memoirs, creative nonfiction, collections of stories and essays, etc.). Additionally, opening chapters, stories, or essays of full-length manuscripts that show promise may be selected for publication in the WTAW Press Features Chapbook Series. Submissions are welcome from writers unpublished, extensively published, and in between. “We don’t privilege one aesthetic over another: we want to publish books that show us more things on heaven and earth than we have dreamt of.” The 2017 reading period will open June 15, 2017, and run through Sept. 15, 2017.
